I'm also curious to see what power it makes on the dyno, will do one when there's an opportunity!

As for mods, I may do an intake (Injen seems like a good choice/$) and perhaps exhaust (stock is very quiet).
Looking gorgeous - amazing what a thorough cleaning and some fresh lenses can do. I'd love to see the dyno #'s on top of the BS report... Also, if you don't know the last time the plugs have been changed, would be nice to see compression and/or leak down #'s, too.

Btw, I've submitted this thread to some friends at Jalopnik. Fingers crossed they pick it up!

That front bumper looks a WHOLE lot better than my F with 150k miles on her.... my front bumper has so many rock chips, it makes me sad everytime I get close up and see it :/

I'm also curious on the light out put on those VIPMotoz Headlights.... any night pics?

The light output is great! The cutoff is very clean. Only issue is that the driver side is a tad low and it's so hard to reach the height adjustment screw on these once its installed! I'll take a night pic next time. The DRLs were wired to be on ACC power. They are visible during the day, but I also have the original high-beam DRLs so it's a bit weird. Need to figure out how I can disable it without dealer intervention...

Here are some shots of the beam output. Needs vertical adjustment and slightly too much to the right.
The VIPMotoz were paired with Nineo H7 LED bulbs https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XBJ4F16/

What are your thoughts on these aftermarket lights? They're considerably cheaper than OEM I'm sure you've noticed. Would love a review from you on install & quality!

While doing the transmission fluid I didn't put enough at first. I put in 4 qts as suggested (it did overflow). Drove for about 50 miles before noticing some slip in the shifts. Put it back up and had the engine running while putting in another 1.5qts. I guess the fluid was low before I did the change. Once filled up, the car ran a lot better, but about the same as before the change. I also had this sulfur smell when flooring it before the fluid change, now I do not have the smell. Maybe it was burning transmission fluid?

I love the quality of these aftermarket lights. The LED kit I installed is still working well. I thought I may run into heat issues but so far no problems. Although I only had one working OEM light, I can say the output and cut off on these is better (based on one side). I do wish these came in chrome or satin finish rather than black. Also once installed, they are difficult to adjust height and rotation. Installation and fitment was pretty straightforward and the fitment is good. Although the top brackets can be a bit stronger, mine was broken during shipping but was able to glue it back.
